Well, to implement this JavaBean feature as a plugin/provider you'd need
a couple things:

1) All the @Param annotations would need to be usable on a method and
field. Right now these annotations are constrained to parameters only.

2) The provider developer would basically have to reimplement half the
spec themselves as they would basically have to have their own
implementation of each @Param annotation.
